How to dress for the gym

Hello everyone

Actually, I didn’t think this would be a topic to discuss. I assumed, everyone would know, how to dress to work out in a studio. But as I read this article of a big swiss news paper, NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), I realized, that this is not the case!
People, there is nothing more important than fresh, washed, nice, functional clothes at the studio. You sweat, you probably have a red head, tousled hair, you don’t wear make up… You’re not the most glamorous version of yourself. Because of that your clothes are even more important. There’s nothing more annoying than someone with sloppy clothes and a… nasty smell (that’s why I try to avoid garlic the evening before a workout).

What you should consider:

  • freshly washed clothes
  • sports bra, shirt, shorts or leggings (functional fabric is to prefer). Don’t show too much skin. Those bra and leggings outfits are reserved for sports models at shootings!
  • no slurred clothes
  • try to look sporty. I don’t understand how people come to a gym with those trainers, which you wear on your couch on sundays.
  • you don’t have to go with labels. H&M, ZARA, Esprit, Mango and others offer good alternatives
  • clean running / workout shoes
  • bring a fresh towel

Have fun and stay fit!
